More than just a DJ

Wedding DJ London at The Shard

April 4, 2015

I get very excited for every event but the opportunity to be London Wedding DJ for Tracy and Stewart at Shangri-La at The Shard carried just a little more edge than usual.  The Shard is a an internationally symbolic venue and the guests themselves, as well as the bride and groom, had flown in from around the world.  What's not to get excited about DJ'ing an all day wedding on the 34th floor of a venue known the world over?

 

That said Tracy and Stewart are a couple of very lovely and down to earth people and this was a great celebration of their mariage with close family and friends.   It was an initmate occasion.

 

 For Tracy and Stewart I supplied:

 

  • music planning for the ceremony - see the full playlist below

  • mood lighting throughout - variations on purple and pink

  • grand entrance for the wedding breakfast

  • background music for the wedding breakfast

  • MC service

  • evening DJ entertainment - see the full playlist below

  • evening Event Photography from Claire Gill

  • party props

 

For their music Tracy and Stewart requested a wide variety of tunes, as did their guests, but to not play any swing, jazz or R&B.   The full playlist for the day is shown below.  As regards lighting their bridal colours were variations on pink and purple and I matched the lighting accordingly.

 

 The evening celebration started hot and never stopped, a great night; th ekids got the dancing started
